  1. linked tabs

    When I link from a spreadsheet, I expect all tabs on the chart to follow the sheet. When I group the tabs I expect them to change in sync. Now, my qtrader only folows one tab at a time, even if I group them all.

  2. Place or amend orders when market is closed

    Currently it is not possible to place or amend an order when the market is closed. What would it take to change this?

  3. Shortcodes for charting tools. e.g: to change the pointer to a trend using the keyboard,

    In multi-screen format the charting tools are too far away to constantly require the mouse to be moved to select them. So on a dual screen setup as an example the tools can be on the top or the bottom of one of the screens. T o select a trend tool followed by a fib tool for quick analysis requires taking your eyes completely of the screen and finding the correct button at the bottom of the tool bar and coming back to apply the tool on the chart.

  7. If you do anything, do not change MBP data feed to MBO datafeed. I tried it on Rithmic and it's laggy compared to yours.

    If you do anything, do not change MBP data feed to MBO datafeed. I tried it on Rithmic and it's laggy compared to yours.

    Unfiltered, milliseconds fast data is the edge is Modern markets and YOU BLOODY WELL ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT. Well done CQG. If you wanna add MBO data in the future do so but leave you current MBP data as an option.

    I also love the platform Qtrader and custumizability. Absolutely the best I have ever seen. If ever I made money in the markets I am going to make donation to you.

  8. Cancelling an Order without Confirmation

    I would like to cancel and modify an order in the DOMTrader without a confirmation. As present, there isn't any option to separate the confirmation for different type of orders, once you uncheck confirmation, all order types will be executed without a confirmation. Please allow us to choose what kind of order we need confirmation and what we do not need confirmation.

  9. Realtime data status on status bar and emailed/texted as alert

    CQG has a "Real-time Data status" window, accessible via Support>Display Real-time Data status

    This is the only way to determine if your CQG client is in sync with the CQG data servers. When this window indicates a time lag (in ms) or a data lag (in bytes), then one knows that their data is not in sync with the CQG data servers. Another symptom of this is when the Quoteboard and the Trading DOM are not in sync.

    This RT Data Status window is very useful, but in practice because traders are focused on the quoteboard or the Trading DOM,…

  10. Either multi chart or floating charts

    Its been said before but I'll say it again... multi charts! Either in the same window but preferably floating charts across monitors.
    I know this is available in CQGM but this is bowser based, and I much prefer a desktop platform for stability reasons. The other option is CQG IC, but the monthly cost is beyond most independant retail traders. So a smaller cheaper version would be really useful and I have no doubt very popular.
    I love CQG products and QTrader with multi charts, even limited to e.g. only 3 charts would definitely be my platform of choice. 100%

  13. Having floating charts capacity outside the page

    Floating charts or panels outside of the page would be ideal. It would allow for more real estate, when using multiple monitors

  14. Be able to save the Chart Interval in separate Tabs and the Chart Interval stays the same Chart Interval for each Tab

    With the upgrade now the Chart Intervals change to the same Chart Interval for each Chart Tab. Where as before I was able to SAVE 4 Chart Tabs each with a different Chart Interval that stayed the same,
    I want 4 Chart Tabs to stay the same Chart Interval time.
    For example;
    60 minute Chart tab
    30 minute Chart Tab
    10 minute Chart tab
    1 minute Chart tab
    I need them to stay that way and then I can review the different markets in each Chart Interval.
    The upgrade changed this. Now forcing many more points and click in a…

  15. Add USDA Data links

    It would be awesome to have links to USDA data sites. In particular, auction barn sales as well as weekly recaps by state.
    As an example, the Oklahoma City recap and National Feeder Cattle summary are included below:
    https://www.ams.usda.gov/market-news/feeder-and-replacement-cattle-auctions#Oklahoma
    https://www.ams.usda.gov/mnreports/sj_ls850.txt

  16. Allow Trading on WTI Crude Options

    I’m trying to trade WTI Crude Oil Calendar Spread Options via Qtrader but have been told it’s not supported. Is there anyway to get this product added or what options do we have?

    This is the product:

  17. Show inverse of contracts on DOM price levels - next to future price.

    Show inverse of contracts on DOM price levels. Eg JYM20 =.009303 but Dom will display 1/JY6=10745 in column next to it. This will be like our Net change and yield displays.

  19. Proper margining for options trades

    The biggest drawback for retail traders is becoming familiar with a 3rd party platform and paying for it when others like TD and IB offer for free. Those platforms are awful, but we as an industry need to align ourselves with proper SPAN margin. Without doing this, TD and IB will always have an edge no matter how bad their platforms are. The margin for a simple call spread is exacerbated drastically. Imagine butterflies, I need my FCM to put clients at 10% margining and this should not be needed.
